10 Most Asked for Funeral Songs

Music is a good way to express our feelings, to represent the person who has died’s personality and to set the tone and style of the funeral or occasion.

Choosing the right music takes consideration. There's a variety of music, from happy to sad. It can bring back memories of times together, or just how you are feeling. There’s genre that’s religious with a variety of popular hymns and gospel music.  There’s modern music from pop, rock n roll and alternative with artists from years ago to the modern day.

Some people want to avoid the traditional or even modern funeral music and opt for funny lyrics or something that some may find unsuitable such as Monty Python ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life’ or ACDC ‘Highway to Hell’. And thats okay as every funeral should be as different as the person you are saying goodbye to. The importance is to consider what the person would have wanted and if it suits the tone you are wanting to achieve.
